Secure Access

Epic is the standard in providing patient access to Electronic Medical Records (EMR). Because the security of patient’s Protected Health Information (PHI) is a top concern for healthcare organizations, consistent, role-based access for authorized users is more important than ever. Without the automation provided by an Identity Management (IDM) solution, the repetitive account management tasks required to ensure appropriate and secure access to Epic resources can be process-intensive and costly.

Simplify Account Provisioning

Whether new to the Identity Management scene or a seasoned veteran of automated account lifecycle provisioning, PDS has the cure for the administrative headache of provisioning Epic user accounts and managing their associated security. The market is literally saturated with off the shelf Identity Management solutions promising integration with applications, directories, databases and more. However, PDS recognized the need to extend the traditional benefits of these Identity Management systems to one of Healthcare’s most critical applications – namely Epic.

App Orchard Member

As a member of Epic’s App Orchard community, PDS developed the Integration Module for Epic at the Epic API layer for use with the Micro Focus® Identity Manager product. The PDS Integration Module translates account lifecycle activities to Epic in real-time and automatically assigns security templates based on role(s). Roles and security are updated throughout the lifecycle of the authorized user ensuring consistent and compliant access to patient information at all times.
